Am I right in assuming that EIDIL / AIDIL is a woman's name? Or is it a
man's name, maybe for Yehuda?
Edel was the name of the Baal Shem Tov's daughter. Descendents of the
BESH'T and of his relatives and disciples have named their female children
Edel (or a derivative such as Adina) in her honor and because of a legend
that anyone in these categories,
named after Edel, will be granted special favor.
